2: Where do it all begin? 1625 (abt) Katherine King, married John Swazey of Salem, Mass. USA. Two of their children where Joseph Swasey and John Swayze. The Swayze families eventually split and followed two different geographical journeys. My connection went from the Boston area, to New York & New Jersey and finally Hamilton, Canada. The other Swasey stayed in the USA.
